But I think Impostor Syndrome is valuable. The people with
Impostor Syndrome are the people who aren’t sure that a
logical proof of their smartness is sufficient. They’re looking
around them and finding something wrong, an intuitive sense that
around here, logic does not always agree with reality, and the
obviously right solution does not lead to obviously happy
customers, and it’s unsettling because maybe smartness isn’t
enough, and maybe if we don’t feel like we know what we’re
doing, it’s because we don’t.
Impostor Syndrome is that voice inside you saying that not
everything is as it seems, and it could all be lost in a
moment. The people with the problem are the people who can’t
hear that voice.
I think this piece explains a lot.
